Q: Mounting HDB handguards

Quick question for those who have mounted HDB handguards on stock handle bars. Never done anything like this so (tapping) sorry for the noob question; When removing the stock handle bar end weights there is a threaded insert at the end that looks like it must be removed in order to insert the included tap from the kit. What is the proper or easiest way to do this or if I am wrong about removing the insert what should I be doing.

Thanks

Been a while since I installed these so without going out and pulling parts from my storage drawer I can't say for sure, but, I believe I used the OEM bar end weights and I know for sure no tapping was involved with the installation. They just bolted right up - easy peasy.
